FEELS LIKE FRANCE

(words & music by Eike Moriz, 17.06.2015)

I wanna wake up – wake up in the Provence

In a chateau by a river near the Alps

You make me feel like the kings of France

All through the night and day we just dance.

 

You and me  - a life of sweet romance:

In Nice, Toulon, Marseille, Aix-en-Provence.

Your flair, your style, your elegance:

No matter where we are it feels like France.

(No matter where we are) x3

It feels like France.


LOVE SWINGS

(words & music by Eike Moriz, 23.04.2015)

Just me and you, the whole day through

The skies are blue, my sweet Le Roux

We’re flying – ohoh LOVE SWINGS

Mmm LOVE SWINGS

 

Just me and you: a dream come true

The moon shines through just for us two

All night – ohoh LOVE SWINGS

Mmm LOVE SWINGS

 

Heaven on earth is a place, a place we both know

Here by your side in the stars’ magic glow

After all to have it all, feel 10ft tall and one with all

in this moment – ohoh LOVE SWINGS

Mmm LOVE SWINGS

 

Just me and you: a dream come true

The moon shines through just for us two

All night – ohoh LOVE SWINGS

Mmm LOVE SWINGS

 

Heaven on earth is a place, a place we both know

Here by your side in the stars’ magic glow

After all to have it all, feel 10ft tall and one with all

in this moment – ohoh LOVE SWINGS

Mmm LOVE SWINGS – oh, in this moment, oh yeah,

LOVE SWINGS


PETITE MADELEINE

(words & music by Eike Moriz, 21.06.2015) 

That scent of summer rain

in the streets of Roma,

The fresh-cut grass on the isle of Sardinia.

A roaring fireplace,

Coffee and vanilla

All these and my favourite Petite Madeleine

 

The ocean air along the coast of Barcelona,

An ancient book, A castle in Malaga

Chocolate and red wine, Bergamotte & roses

All these and my favourite Petite Madeleine

 

Rosemary & cinnamon – fresh baked bread & wood

All these and my favourite Petite Madeleine

All these and my favourite Petite Madeleine


SOFIA

(words & music by Eike Moriz, 05.07.2015) 

You see the world & all its magic

pass before your eyes,

Everything’s a miracle on earth & in the skies.

Wide open every moment your heart & soul so wise,

Pure & bright on every step your light, it shines.

 

Sofia – you saw the morning in Gemini,

Sofia – just after eight we caught your eye,

Sofia – our world stood still,

Sofia – we love you & we always will.

TUSCANY

(words & music by Eike Moriz, 14.10.2015)

Won’t you come with me to magic Tuscany

To Elba’s sunny beaches at the Tyrrhenian Sea

Snow-capped mountains in the Appenines

Olive groves and vineyards of Chianti

 

Won’t you come with me to magic Tuscany

To Pisa’s ‘Leaning Tower’ at the ‘Piazza dei Miracoli’

Travel back in time to the Rennaissance

See Michelangelo’s ‘David’ in Florence

  

Won’t you come with me to magic Tuscany

You and me together - the best company

The moon’s shining bright – the time is right

Holding hands at midnight under starry skies

Swim in crystal waters in the morning light

Step through this magic portal and take this flight

You   and   me   in Tuscany’s so fine


Won’t you come with me to magic Tuscany

You and me together's the best company

Step through this magic portal and take this flight

You   and   me   in Tuscany  tonight


A BILLION WORLDS

(words & music by Eike Moriz, 14.10.2015)

When the sun rises over the desert dunes

Every grain of sand sings to a different tune

When the light shines on the southern planes

Love has more than a billion different names

 

When I wake up each day, all is new in every way

All the sights and sounds

A billion grains, a billion names, a billion pearls

This planet is a billion worlds

 

When I wake up each day, all is new in every way

All the sights and sounds

A billion grains, a billion names, a billion pearls

This planet is a billion worlds

This planet is a billion worlds


LIGHT OF LOVE

(words & music by Eike Moriz, 17.06.2015)

Just a flash of a second

Of the age of the world.

To live this life we’ve been

Beckoned for our souls to unfurl.

 

Paint on this canvas

With all the colours that we know

And then add some more

From the magical unknown.

 

Round and round along the spiral

On this path supreme.

Spawn the sound of the cycle

Called forth by our being.

 

Polish this gemstone

From all sides thereof

Until it shines so brightly

In the light of love.

 

Polish this gemstone

From all sides thereof

Until it shines so brightly

In the light of love.
